    Fabulous to see you putting up the info on new games genki!! Happy bounce Thank You

    Evil Grin Next thing, I'll have to start reviewing them.  Silly face

    But the forum is only allowing me access to some of these threads when they appear in the right hand column, with no distinction that I can tell. Suggestions?

    That's odd... I'm having trouble with not being able to click on the links in the right-hand column sometimes, but only when I'm at work (using Chrome, whereas I use Firefox at home.)  Wonder if that has something to do with it... ?

    I'm playing this game now, and am working on a review, myself.  Good to see you posting! Happy bounce  I think the D&E crowd has given up on GGG.

    Ah! I use Chrome exclusively, so that is probably it. Oh well, will have to cope with it I guess.

    In between Dragon Cave and Midnight Castle I am dawdling through the first of the New York Mysteries. Only just started it really. Like it so far, but not yet wowed.  Big smile

    World Keepers: Last Resort (IHOG)

    Options: separate sliders for music and sound effects, custom cursor and full-screen or windowed, plus three difficulties to choose from.  HINTS cannot be disabled, no matter which difficulty you choose, so click carefully.

    There is a jump-to MAP, which can only be accessed via the journal (there's a MAP button at the very top.)

    There are 7 chapters, total, and each contains one hidden object scene, which you will visit twice.  On the plus side, all of the items you find the first time around will stay gone.  The "Find" list can be minimized, and sometimes there are items that you need to find hidden behind it.  Be aware that there is a GLITCH in the second HOS in Chapter 2.  Solution:  'Scales' is listed twice.  One is balancing scales, as you would expect, the other is a weight that would go on the scales.

    There are a couple of minor localization issues, but the only one that was really bothersome was trying to figure out what a "PUTTON" was (button, of course.)  It was the only mislabeled item I saw besides the "scales" issue mentioned above.

    Scenes can be dragged vertically just a smidgen.

    In the final chapter there is another GLITCH, which prevents some people (including me) from being able to solve the time puzzle without skipping.  SUPER-IRRITATING for those of us pursuing all of the achievements, as there's literally no way to get the achievement for not skipping any puzzles.  I also did not get the achievement for using no hints, despite starting the game over TWICE because I had accidentally hit the hint button >_< 

    Thoughts:  Ridiculous story, good (but not outstanding) graphics, no voice-overs, recycled HOS, so-so in length... Just not the quality I'm used to from Alawar-Stargaze.  I was irritated with the game right from the beginning, but that is due to my personal preference.  I'd still recommend the game for a few hours of entertainment for HOG-lovers, although there are definitely better titles out there.
